The recovery after the crisis has allowed an attempt of restarting the project, and it already has fixed dates, a budget of 92 million of Euros and a recipient: "La Unión Temporal de Empresas" formed by Indra, General Dynamics European Land Systems-Santa Bárbara Sistemas and SAPA operations.
At the end of 2015 it was signed the contract for the start of the first step (the design and development phase), which will finish next November with the arrival of five technological demonstrators. Once they have been given, operative tests will be conducted, and the Brigade of the Spanish Legion has been chosen for this commitment.
Its objective is to replace, in a progressive way, the historical BMR, TOA and VEC, and the vehicles used for the protection towards mines and improvised explosive devices, such as the Lince and the RG-31.
